Want to learn how to remove white background fast and easily? In this post, I will show you how to remove background in Adobe Photoshop. It will take you less than 2 minutes, and the result will be a really good-looking professional image.
Step #1 Open Adobe Photoshop and add an image
Pick an image of your choice. For this tutorial, I have chosen image in its original size, so the final template will be a rectangle.
Follow the below step to upload the image in Photoshop To open the image, Go to File → Open → Choose the image → Click Open
If you want to use the same image I’ve used in the tutorial, see the link below:
Step #2 Duplicate the layer
To duplicate the layer, right-click on the layer and select ‘Duplicate Layer’. You can also duplicate the layer pressing (Ctrl + J).
Tip: Always duplicate the layer if you work in Photoshop as it will protect your original file.
Step #3 Use the magic wand tool
Go to the toolbar and select the magic wand tool.
Then click on the white area of the image. See below
Step #4 Remove the background
Now once the image is selected, all you have to do is press the delete key on the keyboard to delete the white background.
Then press Ctrl + D to de-select the selection.
Step #5 Save the image
Once you remove the background, if you want to save the image so it retains its transparent background, you’ll have to save the image as a PNG file.
I can save the PNG file by click File → Export→ Export As and then select PNG and click Export.
And voila! Enjoy the final result.
